Medics: At Least 25 Dead in Triple Bombing in East Libya

Friday, 20 Feb 2015 06:14 AM

At least 25 people were killed and 30 wounded Friday in a triple bombing in an eastern Libyan town close to the jihadist stronghold of Derna, medical and security sources said.

The simultaneous bombings targeted police headquarters in Al-Qoba, as well as the home of the speaker of Libya's internationally recognized parliament and a petrol station, the sources said.

Al-Qoba is just 30 kilometers (20 miles) west of Derna, where Egypt launched air strikes against jihadist targets on Monday in retaliation for a gruesome Islamic State group video showing the beheading of 21 Christians.
